oh .. good idea!   make note: "rotate head to even out the flat spots".  Got it.  :-)

and ... it is so *PRETTY*!  :-)

Might I add now that I have different plans for the edge finish than what the pattern shows?  Of course, I do.  :-)

I took a class from 'The Hexpert' herself - Cheryl See... it was a fun class and I only did ONE of those Hexie - Daisies that figure into the design of 'Star Struck'

Did you know she did a miniature one of 'Star Struck' (named 'Starlette') in addition to the full sized one that currently resides in the Paducah Quilt Museum... she has way more patience than I do!

And as you can see, I don't have nearly the stash Cheryl has for blending backgrounds. Each of the background hexies is a different color - we had trading sessions in class to see if we could get a smooth transition going - this was the best I could do!

Wow!  I am really impressed!  Your quilt looks great!  How long did it take you to make?

I think you did a very nice job of blending the background.  I hope you have a nice place to display this sweet quilt.

Ooh...don't rightly remember how long it took to make! the Hexie-Daisy center was done in class... and I remember taking the rest of it to work to sew on during lunch. A couple of weeks, I think!

It hung on my flipper cabinet at work for a long time...Since I work from home now, all the stuff I used to have in my office is home now.

Sadly, I have no space to hang up anything anymore at home! I have a stack of wall hanging quilts that I occasionally rotate. It's probably time to do another rotation.

Your hexi quilt is really pretty.
